The most common side effects of Glyciphage are diarrhoea, nausea, stomach upset and symptoms of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), such as lightheadedness, dizziness, shakiness, or hunger may also occur. Serious side effects are very rare and occur mostly in people whose kidneys or liver are not working normally. The most serious side effect is lactic acidosis. It may be life threatening. Your physician will check your kidney and liver function to determine if you are at risk.
